We brought DAY OFF to Los Angeles last month, throwing our long running NYC bash in Cali for the first time ever. Suffice it to say… it was crazy! The whole fam was in effect, with A-Trak, Danny Brown, Chromeo, Cool Kids, Casey Veggies, Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs and more performing in front of a few thousand of LA’s finest party people. And when it was all said and done, we threw an afterparty with the likes of Dave1, RL Grime, Carnage, Franki Chan… Good times!
Check the recap video above, and check some photos from the Cobrasnake (two galleries!), Shadowscene, Say Cheese And Die, The Source, Shout out to Adidas, Scion, iheartcomix, The Well, the Shrine Auditorium and everyone else who came together to make the first DAY OFF LA so fun! See you again next year… Read More

This Sunday (10/7) the crew hits Los Angeles for our first ever West Coast edition of DAY OFF, featuring A-Trak, Danny Brown, Chromeo (DJ Set), Cool Kids, Casey Veggies, Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs and special guests.
The response to our initial Day Off LA announcement was so crazy that we hit capacity on RSVPs only a few hours later! We held some space though, and will be releasing 500 additional RSVPs on the website today at noon PST. (If you’ve already RSVPed, hold tight – venue info will be emailed to you before the event).
We’ve also got a limited selection of VIP passes available for sale, which includes access to the private venue entrance and viewing area behind the stage, hosted bar and food.

For three years running, our annual DAY OFF party has been THE most talked about free music event in New York. The Labor Day extravaganza has featured the likes of Juicy J, A$AP Rocky, Just Blaze, Araabmuzik and the late, great DJ Mehdi. This year’s party was raved about by the New York Times, Village Voice, Pitchfork and countless others. So it’s only right that we transport our hometown insanity to the West Coast for the first-ever Los Angeles DAY OFF on Sunday, October 7th!
Highlights of Cali’s inaugural DAY OFF lineup include performances from FG capo A-Trak and the label’s reigning rap hero Danny Brown, a special DJ set from world class funksters Chromeo, longtime homies and 808 kings the Cool Kids, LA favorite Casey Veggies, and many more of Fool’s Gold’s illustrious artists, including Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, and special guests. You do not want to miss this one!

The latest item to hit the Fool’s Gold webstore (and our retail headquarters on 536 Metropolitan Ave in BK) is a special edition book / 7″ vinyl combo package of author Dave Tompkins’ How To Wreck A Nice Beach. Grab it now!
This respected music journalist and bugged out prose purveyor spent years tracing the history of electronic voices from World War II laboratories to 80s synth music to cell phones. With interview subjects ranging from Ramellzee to T-Pain (and of course our own P-Thugg dropping vocoder science), this fascinating, lovingly researched and entertainingly written book is a must. The expanded softcover edition comes complete with a bonus color vinyl 7″ single of vocoder jams from Dave’s personal collection.
